Introduction I have been pulled in three major directions in my life: science, (especially as it applies to inventions); policy (especially energy and resource policy, including political activism); and entrepreneurship. My number one goal in life is to bring The supergrid closer to reality through my inventions. I believe a supergrid is the only practical way to enable a renewable energy–based economy.
Interests Really passionate about slowing climate change and breaking our addiction to fossil fuels before it is too late. My piece of that puzzle is to advocate for a supergrid, and to contribute to making the supergrid possible technologically. My two particular contributions are elpipes (underground high capacity, high efficiency transmission lines), and Ballistic Breakers, which are a key technology to enable DC grids at several different power levels, from microgrids to supergrids. I joined Alevo and brought my inventions with me; This over archingCallIs on pause right now, Until I canGain access to my own patents in that area.I am using this timeTo document some other very large inventions I have before I die.
Favorite Movies "In America" "Whale Rider" for example...you might say these are "chick flicks;" certainly they are not action films.
Favorite Music snippets: Jimmy Cliff "You can get it if you really want, " Cat Stevens "On the road to find out, " Beethoven:Symphony #7
Favorite Books Saul Bellow, Tom Wolf For example
